Must make every visit to the garden exciting wondering what new variations of colour and markings will appear. Such a shame each flower is so short lived. Lovely to see them as we sink further into winter. :)

Today felt like winter with low temps for this time of year! However we'll soon be sinking into a hideously hot and dry summer!
It is a bit of excitement to see the different flowers. You may notice the "bread tags" on the stems in the lower left hand side of the last pic; I write the colour of the flower on the tag so I know which seed is likely to give us what colour - though with the cross-pollination who knows what will arise!
